Tailor Made suit


I'm going to be in Jo'burg on work for a week and half.

I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good tailor to have a suit made?

Further questions:

-what sort of price range would I be looking at?

-would they be able to make me the suit in the timeframe I have?

There seems to be only one "real" tailor in Jo'burg. He is in the city centre of Jo'burg - a trip not for the faint-hearted!

…financialmail.co.za/07/0413/life/blife.htm : According to this site, Louis Gwatkin: A suit starts at R12 000. Loveday Street, Johannesburg. Tel: +27 11 834 8445

I know people who have bespoke shirts made all the time, but this is not a big area for bespoke suits. Maybe next time you are in the far east?
